    R36 engine

    Anyone able to tell me what donor car you would find an R36 engine in apart from a passat R36 or passat cc.
    My friend who talked me into buying an R32 donor for my caddy is thinking of a conversion for his mk3 caddy

    Audi Q7 & Porsche Cayenne AFAIK

    They are physically different (bigger) than the R32

    I believe the porsch cayenne runs the 3.6 V6 but I don’t believe theirs many other motors running that motor. But I probably will be corrected soon

    So a passat would be the best option for a donor car.
    Ive seen pics of mk4 and mk5 golfs with it done so I assume it can be done on a mk3 caddy

    Does anyone on here know the differences between an fsi r32 engine and an r36 engine? Are the both the same wiring wise?
    Also can a 4mo dsg box be converted to 2wd like an 02m can?
    Theres very little about r36 conversions online
